Based on a proposal by LEGO Ideas member Andrew Clark, set #21316 includes minifigs of the Flintstones Fred and Wilma, and their neighbors Barney and Betty. It comes with the Flintstone residence, their car and even a huge dinosaur rib. They left out Dino though.
LEGO builder Luke Taylor shows off his labor of love for the last decade – a sprawling, futuristic city made from countless bricks. Like the real deal, it’s an ever-changing, ever-growing urban landscape. Another great video from Beyond the Brick’s Joshua Hanlon.
While it’s not as fast as the life-size LEGO Bugatti, this LEGO replica of a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss is still quite the feat. It took 18 builders over 2,000 hours to construct from over 334,000 bricks. It’s on display at the 2019 NAIAS in Detroit.
Teenager Caleb Watson built one of the best LEGO displays we’ve ever seen. It’s a kinetic diorama of the opening scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark. It breaks the scene down into multiple segments, including fetching the idol, and the boulder rolling after Indiana Jones.
LEGO master Shadow Elenter shows off another impressive Technic build. His latest creation is a Howitzer style tank that weighs in at 12 pounds. It has working treads, and some amazing weaponry, including a massive gun that plants itself to handle its recoil.
LEGO set 10264 is a 2500-piece, model of a 1950’s-style building loaded with details, including a fuel pump and vehicle lift, an animal hospital on the second floor, a furnished apartment on the top floor, and a roof deck for minifigs to sun themselves on. Drops 1/2019.
What better gift to give a LEGO fan than an official and limited edition LEGO gift box? This collectible set was originally given away to customers who purchased sets at LEGO stores. It contains a living room with two minifigs, a fireplace, a chair, and a toy train.
The guys from the Hydraulic Press Channel decided to take authentic LEGO bricks and put them up against some cheap knockoffs to see how they hold up to the weight of their press. We won’t spoil the results, but suffice it to say you won’t be crushing them under your feet.
LEGO Ideas contributor Sleepy Cow created this 2,798 piece model of a grand piano which features 25 working keys, complete with strings, pedals, and dampers. It doesn’t actually play music, but it’s still a mechanical marvel. If you’d like to see it produced, vote here.
LEGO machine maker JK Brickworks follows up last year’s Halloween candy dispenser with an even better one. His latest machine spins round and round, and flings candy bars at the kids. Want one? Buy the LEGO 17101 BOOST Creative Toolbox, and follow the directions here.
Inspired by a design submitted by Grant Davis and Jason Allemann, this 859-piece LEGO kit lets builders create two different scenes inside the “pages” of a pop-up book, each based on a classic fairy tale – Little Red Riding Hood or Jack and the Beanstalk. Drops 11/1/18.
Yoshihito Isogawa shows off another impressive build. He used LEGO Technic and Mindstorms parts, along with mirrors and a laser pointer to create a mechanism that can project laser patterns on the wall by rapidly modulating its reflector. Here’s another variant he also made.
Brick fanatic Sariel shows off one of his most creative builds yet – a LEGO machine that uses a rotating loop of bubble wands and and a spinning fan blade to blow soap bubbles. Yes, there are off-the-shelf machines that do the same, but they’re not made from LEGO.
Based on a rare 2008 set, this 826-piece LEGO Creator Expert Vestas Wind Turbine lets you build a 39″ tall version of the energy capture devices you see popping up in the countryside. Its tiny trees are the first LEGO parts made from sustainable plant-based plastic. Drops 11/23/18.
